  • The Intersection of Public Health and Healthcare in the 21st Century: Hot Topics and Practice Tips, All Parts - On Demand Recording

    The webinar series aims to provide updates on state and federal law, highlight trends and distinctions in state law, and each webinar will offer practical perspectives and tips for lawyers representing hospitals, public health departments, and other health system partners.

    Time (All Sessions): 90 minutes
    Sessions Format: On Demand Recording

    During the 20th century, the historic emphasis of public health on protecting populations from infectious disease and environmental threats expanded to include the prevention and reduction of chronic disease through behavior and lifestyle interventions. As we move forward into the 21st century, new challenges have emerged that have further expanded the work of those in public heath, serve to highlight the critical intersection between public health and health care, and require new and innovative strategies and legal approaches. 

    For example, as we move into the next frontier in electronic health records, and as the nation moves away from the fee-for-service model, an understanding of the state and federal legal framework for improved interoperability and data sharing become critical. The expanded deployment of telecommunications, and remote diagnostic technology, have created more options for how individuals receive healthcare, requiring competency in the laws and legal frameworks supporting the growing field of telemedicine. And, the US is currently in the midst of a devastating opioid misuse epidemic that has resulted in the enactment of a complex set of federal and state laws.

    CDC's Public Health Law Program and the American Health Lawyers Association announce a 3-part series of webinars series will explore three hot topics at the intersection of public health and health care law in the 21st century: data sharing, telemedicine, and the opioid crisis. The webinar series aims to provide updates on state and federal law, highlight trends and distinctions in state law, and each webinar will offer practical perspectives and tips for lawyers representing hospitals, public health departments, and other health system partners.

  • Pharmacy Benefit Managers 101: Who They Are and What They Do

    This on-demand program is designed to provide legal counsel and others with a basic understanding of pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs). Over the past 25 years, new medications and broader insurance coverages have led to a doubling of expenditures for outpatient prescription drugs. The growth in prescription drug coverage has led to increased complexity in the delivery and reimbursement of medications. PBMs are organizations which address this complexity by impacting most aspects of the pharmaceutical supply chain. The Trump Administration’s recently announced initiative to reduce prescription drug costs – which includes proposals focusing on PBMs – recognizes the important role that these organizations play in today’s healthcare system. Consequently, it’s essential for counsel to have a basic understanding of a PBM’s role and the laws governing its activities. This program is relevant not only for PBM attorneys, but also for counsel who represent the numerous entities and individuals directly impacted by PBM operations, including health plans, employers, third party administrators, pharmacies, drug manufacturers, drug wholesalers and patients.
